Mary is an offspring of the counter-culture mind-blown hippie movement that sprung up north of the Bay Area after the sixties. She roamed through the landscape with all of the other half-feral, half-naked, half-educated children running wild in the hills and forests of Northern California, like Titania's fairies roamed through the Grecian wood or Wendy's lost boys roamed through Neverland, dancing through buttercups, oak leaves, and wild strawberries.
She continued to roam as she grew older, through Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas, finally landing in San Francisco where she currently resides with three pesky roommates and two mellow cats, no wait switch that. Armed with a BS in biology from the University of California San Diego, she was a veterinarian’s assistant and then a field biologist and then a zookeeper at the San Francisco Zoo. But her passion for books drew her to writing. She graduated from Mills College, Oakland with a MFA in Creative Writing and English. She puts her second degree to use as Managing Editor of Reputation Books and Literary Agent at Kimberley Cameron & Associates.
She has taken her love of adventure & biology and turned it to the pen to write about all the strange, fabulous, and unexpected in this world.

Great book! I can't stop telling people about it. Strong, exciting relationships between characters (eh hem, Connelly and Aaron) leave me eager for the next book....definitely Team Aaron! I also enjoyed the parallels between the struggles of the different species in the book and interracial problems in our own society. Very educated and thoughtful writing. Definitely an up and coming author!

I rated it 4 stars but it's mostly 3.75 stars.
I mean, it was a very good book, and really interesting, adventurous, with some suspence, battling, fighting, and just a touch of romance.
yep, that must be the problem. I don't say it should have had sex scenes and making out sessions. But, Jeez, at least a damn kiss?!?! Nope. I waited until the end for the characters to understand they liked each other and see a damned kiss. But nothing happened. Nope. They had to get to know each other better first. Seriously? WTF?!?!
That thing aside, the book was very good and I couldn't put it down. I was just too curious of what would come next and how the story would end.
Not bad, but not a favorite.
I would recommend it, however.
